BERLIN--Luxury car maker BMW says its net earnings jumped 27.2 percent in the second quarter as an improved model mix boosted the company's profitability and sales grew worldwide.

Revenue rose 1.8 percent to 19.9 billion euros, a figure dampened by currency effects. The company sold 5.3 percent more cars, delivering 533,187 vehicles.
